    I have been working at Loomis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -A paycheck
    -$50 gift card once a year

    Cons

    -Little to no room for advancement. There's guys that been there 10 years or more that will still be in the same position as a new hire.
    -Long hours, but because of a technicality they pay overtime based on days worked in a week (anything after 5 days in a week will be time and a half) and not hours. Let me explain. I've worked 77 hours in a week, but only 9 hours were considered time and a half. I've also worked 9 and 10 days straight on several occasions, but it was always scheduled so that I never worked more than 5 days in a single week so there was no overtime paid.

    Pros

    There's none unless you are management.

    Cons

    Long hours with no overtime
    Managers will work you into a puddle regardless of any personal issues you may be having.
    They never listen to the employees concerns or complaints, they send a letter to your house saying you will receive an anonymous survey that needs to be submitted before a certain date. That survey is given at your branch and the managers sift through them and throw out the ones they don't like before sending them to corporate. I have with my owns eyes seen this happen a few months ago.
    Managers hide behind "Company Policies" there is an employee handbook but recently branch managers have decreed changes in Company Policy with no paperwork to back it up.
    It's a "Who you know" job. If you're not being buddy-buddy with a manager you're not going to advance.
    I know of many individuals in this company who have been working for this company over 10 years and they have not received any compensation. New employees are getting hired at higher wages than some employees that have been there for 5+ years.
    The "Integrity Line" they have to elevate problems within the branch to corporate is a joke. All it does it route the complaint back to the branch. When you have a concern about branch management, they are the ones who receive the "anonymous" call and nothing is ever done.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees they are the ones who do the work!
    Your managers abuse their position and hide in their offices playing games on their company phones, watching movies calling it a "Managers Meeting", using company resources to buy all of their friends within the branch lunch daily and calling it a meeting.

    I worked at Loomis full-time

    Pros

    High turn-over means you have a good chance of being hired. Most of the road crew is good to work with, also most weeks are over 40 hours.

    Cons

    There is no over time; you can invest up to a $1000.00 in equipment; management seem ready to replace you than move your concerns to actions; a lot of the training is by the seat of your pants; Loomis keeps salaries as low as they can

    Advice to Management

    People are your priority, not bonuses.
